Rates continues its climb throughout the week, putting pressure to risk on asset with the S&P500 closing off the week near its recent low. Although the indices gained some ground upon the release of the retail sales, the move was completely removed. Rates remain the core issues until May FOMC. USD/JPY continues its rally but we expect the move to be losing momentum soon as many Japanese raises concern with the weakening of the Yen, potentially losing in profitability as imports using USD becomes more expensive.
Upcoming Economic Release:
Dollar Index (DXY)
The Dollar experienced some retracement until the released of the retail sales. The move was recovered and has closed the week at a new recent high. We are still expecting the Dollar to rise until May's FOMC.
